Description

UPDATE: WAIT LIST TICKETS AVAIL ONLY, REGULAR RSVP'S ARE SOLD OUT.

Don't You Want Me is a global documentary photography project showcasing the beauty and resilience of LGBTQ people with their rescued dogs. Coupling compelling images and personal narratives, Don’t You Want Me shows that individuals of all stripes have the ability to transform their lives when they are given love. And the question of ‘who rescued who’ becomes universal, no matter how you identify.

________________________________

Kicking off in Toronto for ​Transgender Day of Visibility, March 31, 2019​, ​Don’t You Want Me is proud to present an inaugural exhibit and party. Held at Tom&Sawyer from 5 - 7pm, our launch party will feature some of the images and narratives from the project with the backdrop of this stunning, sunny venue. Attendees can learn more about it and become ambassadors, participants and supporters! Also, meet some of our participants and their pups; wine and non-alcoholic drinks will be on offer, and a few other surprises. No personal dogs allowed BUT Tom&Sawyer will be giving away doggie goodie bags for those with canines at home. Save Our Scruff will be there with an adoptable dog or two and several 'famed' Toronto VIP pups will be there to meet and greet. Beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks will be on offer for a suggested donation to Save Our Scruff. JUST ADDED: a super special secret guest will be joining us..... WAIT FOR IT!

EVENT IS FREE BUT EVENTBRITE RSVP IS REQUIRED FOR ENTRY
Don't You Want Me will follow this event with a month-long exhibit at a venue TBD - stay tuned!

** DOGGY DATES TORONTO IS OUR LEAD SPONSOR

________________________________

Don’t You Want Me documents a global community. Deb Klein and Jack Jackson - both photographers and believers in the human-animal connection - use the photographic lens to capture the intimacy and emotional heartbeat of the bond and entice the audience into the lives of their subjects. Currently in Toronto, Brighton UK, and NYC, this ongoing photo project (and ultimately book) reaches out across borders, from North America and Europe, and onward.
